How long after feeding tube removed

Friend had feeding tube removed Friday and morphine was increased. Any idea how long it will be before they are out of misery....

Re: How long after feeding tube removed

It depends on many factors...Depends on how much morphine is given. If they give enough to suppress the breathing then it could be right now or within hours. If they give just enough to cover pain then it could be a week or so?
